At the Excel Academy in Eastie for having a loaded 9mm.

A very dangerous situation for police to handle but I don't believe a BB gun is a firearm.

A BB gun is not a "firearm." Is the statutory meaning broader?

Yes it’s a misdemeanor and if it were a real firearm he would have been charged with both violations. One charge is possession of a firearm without a license (a felony) and carrying a “firearm” (which includes BB guns) on campus would be the second charge.

BB / Pellet Gun when carried on School Grounds is considered a Firearm.
